Does anyone know if this is available with an eval version of Admin Studio 6? I just downloaded to test the functionality of Installscript Scan and it is not working. The Installscript MSI Identified Panel is never opening. I do know that the setup.exe's I am attempting to convert are Installscript MSI setups. Any ideas?

I tried it once, but it asked me for a password, so I am assuming it will only work for the original creator of the setup.exe and not for an end user to repackage it.

Can anyone confirm this?

I really hope this is not the case, although it is never asking me for a password.

I had it work but I dunno how robust it really is. I strongly suggest calling up the sales rep assigned to you. The InstallShield sales force is rather agressive but they will usually put you straight in touch with their tech support.

I talked to Installshield support and basically there is a "bug" with the beta version. There is a workaround if you purchase it however.

Well I am actually kinda suprised that they would pull that considering how they are trying to ram product down our throats at the client site I am currently at. I guess this does not help you evaluate their product's superior features.

From the Installshield boards:

You need to make sure you are using Single Snaphot or Install Monitoring. It won't work with Multiple.

Also, you do need a file called isrepackager.ini in the same location as the repackager executable. This has to have the PIDKEY in it like this:

[GENERAL]
PIDKEY=AAAAAA-1111-1111111111

So, if this is an eval, you probably don't have a PIDKEY, so you may be out of luck.

Yeah, thats what I found out today when I tried to use the eval to properly convert an Installscript to basic MSI. You need to have a product key to use it.

For future reference, there's also a bug if you are running it remotely on vmware.
